We try to go to the Irish Democrat whenever we get to Cedar Rapids. The wontons are always the first thing we order. The club is great. Plenty to eat and always served quickly.

The Irish Democrat is one of those places that I can count on to be good, and the servers are prompt, friendly. I also love the historic photos.

My husband and I stopped by the other day for lunch and enjoyed it. We got the cheese wontons and split and ID sandwich. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very good.

Had fish and chips. Great. My spouse loved the Rubin. A CR place to meet and eat for any meal. Parking in back makes it great for access
